An ICAC undercover operation resulted in an arrest this month. An undercover officer was online as a 13-year old girl when the subject engaged her in sexually explicit conversations including requests by the subject to send sexually explicit images of herself to him. Additionally, the subject sent streaming video to the child of himself masturbating.
Based upon initial investigation the subject was identified as a 32-year old lawyer in Ohio and also a girl's high school basketball coach. Law enforcement authorities in Ohio were contacted where a search warrant was obtained and executed.
The subject was charged federally with both the possession and production of child pornography as it was determined that he had communicated with several other teenage girls from around the country some of whom he had obtained images from.
